GameStop becomes next retailer to announce store closures for Thanksgiving

By on October 19, 2020

Following in the footsteps of retail giants like Walmart and Target, GameStop has announced that all retail locations will be closed on Thanksgiving this year. This is a shift from previous years where many locations were required to open up mid-afternoon on Thanksgiving to kick off the Black Friday shopping sales.

Of course, customers will be able to shop online on the GameStop site, likely earlier than Thanksgiving as more online retailer launch deal pricing on the Wed night prior to Thanksgiving. Customers can use a same-day shipping option (if available) or simply head to the store the following day to pick up their order (assuming the order is placed on Thursday).

GameStop typically released their Black Friday sales ad in the final week of October or the first week of November. If the company attempts to follow Walmart’s lead, expect to see more frequent flash sales during early November.

As always, you can watch the GameStop-specific deal feed on Ben’s Bargains to view the latest deals. This holiday season is expected to be particularly busy for video games with two new, next-generation consoles coming out as well as deep discounts on previous gen hardware and software.

If you are shopping at GameStop this year, keep in mind that free shipping only works on orders that are $35 or more.
